3M introduces five new lines of personal protective equipment
3M introduces five new lines of personal protective equipment. They include SecureFit Protective Eyewear, Peltor X Series Earmuffs, the H-800 Series Full Brim Hard Hat with a Uvicator Sensor, the Safety Sunwear Series, and the Peltor WS Series Headsets with Bluetooth Wireless Technology.
SecureFit eyewear is designed to reduce work-related eye injuries. Made with 3M proprietary Pressure Diffusion Temple Technology, the SecureFit also features temples that adjust to individual head sizes.
Built with new ear cushion foam technology and earcups that are designed to tilt, the 3M Peltor X Series Earmuffs provide noise protection of up to 31 decibels. The series also incorporates an electrically insulated twin headband design that reduces heat buildup and provides five different levels of noise-exposure protection to match the working environment.
For workers who prefer a hard hat with a full brim, the 3M H-800 Series Full Brim Hard Hat provides added protection with 4- and 6-point ratchet suspension combinations, and an optional Uvicator Sensor. The smart sensor changes color from red to white as the hard hat is exposed to ultraviolet (UV) light, alerting the wearer when it’s due for a replacement.
Available in 10 different styles and two different lens coating – anti-fog and anti-scratch – 3M Safety Sunwear provides eye protection that wearers can modify into regular sunglasses. The series is lightweight with spring-hinged aluminum temples for increased stability and comfort.
Designed with connectivity in mind, the Peltor WS Series Headsets with Bluetooth Wireless Technology gives workers the ability to communicate, listen to music, and talk on the phone all without removing their headset. Each headset amplifies lower-level sounds, like voices, while attenuating higher-level sounds, like those found in the workplace, and limits exposure to 82 decibels. Offered in four distinct styles with some offering interchangeable cups, and optional boom mics, this series of headsets provides stereo-quality sound and gives wearers the ability to simultaneously monitor connected electronics.
